    Rocko's Sketchbook

    Hey fellas,

    I'm a 25y old illustration student from Berlin/Germany and i'm about to finish it in the next months.
    I had a sketchbook here already but it makes more sense to start a new one, since I last updated it a couple of years ago

    Before wasting too much time talking I throw in a few recent works and a few not so recent ones. A few personal ones and a few job ones.

    Cheeeeeers

    chaostheory: big thx. i had a pretty long travel recently and my impressions are very strong still. i guess you can see it in some of the works.

    mila: affirmative

    lewiston: i'm glad you found me as well because i found you now

    just finished this sketch. was great fun. i never do things like robots n stuff. i guess i can do it because i'm sick at the moment. it might bring up all this weird stuff to the surface

    wow! you have some really cool stuff. Really diging the robo-samurai

    My sketchbook

    DA

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    The one with the jungle and the stone doorway in post #2 is my favorite.

    hm I like those dragondesigns (maybe they resemble me of my approaches) for their more realisticlooking shapes.. can't look at those overused typical D&D dragons anymore.
    oh and jepp, I don't roam the threads of the DAf too for years now.. its too sad cause it was where it all started (for me using paintchat starting to paint with mouse)^^

    I really love the first piece and all of the landscape pieces. Reminds me to start incorporating more landscapes because I mostly draw figures.

    nice - like it all - & the last three, the first landscapes & then the mountain side and adenture party in 2nd post and the asian sword fighters/demons stood out.

    I like your compositions and content and flow/feel as the eye wanders over your creations.

    Thanks for posting these ~ & that you do manage to do anything after work says a bit about how lazy I was when I didn't (when I did work)

    Looking forward to more.

    Thanks a lot you two!
    I was such a lazy ass. Well not really. I was doing my bachelor thesis and some jobs beside that, but no energy to do personal stuff. Except that little dragon right here. Got inspiration from Berlin Tierpark today. Such a colorful world we're living in, very inspirational. Note to myself: "Go more crazy with color. Color is your friend!"
